Mary Kirk (previously Alves Church) dates from 1769 and is grade 'B' listed. Planning consent and building warrant were obtained - but have now lapsed - to convert the church into a a two storey home.

Rod Christie of Galbraith in Elgin says: "Although the planning consent has now lapsed, it is likely that the local authority will be minded to once again approve conversion to a private home, as has been the case in other deconsecrated churches in the region. The current Moray Local Development Plan supports this use.

"The proposed accommodation includes a living room, family dining room, breakfasting kitchen and four bedrooms (three en-suite).
